Lizzie Anne Santa


I didn't originally plan to make this a set. There's a reason why you see my library folder card (Beate's challenge) and a 2-5-7-10 box as well. I had stamped one Santa for my card, and put it aside for later. When I got back to working on my card, Santa was missing. So...I stamped another. Then I found out that my three-year-old had run off with the first, and she gave it back. Since I had two Santas...why not make one of Jenn's boxes I'd been wanting to try? It went very quickly using my Scor-Pal.

The Santa image is a Lizzie Anne Simply Single stamp. I purchased mine from Lindsey's Ebay store. The word "Believe" is part of the stamp, but I decided to ink it separately for the tab at the top of the card. Santa is stamped with Adirondack Pitch Black, and colored with my Copic Sketch Markers. I decided to make his "nose like a cherry", by using Adornit Gems (purchased from Eclectic Paperie). The designer paper is from the double sided SU "Dashing" paper.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
